1000 thought on “Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania

  1. Retelling a story that has been told many times already is either foolish what s new or courageous see what s new Larson successfully manages to bring a fresh perspective to a tale that I felt I knew.Dead Wake The Last Crossing of the Lusitania is a surprisingly well crafted re telling of a known event Despite knowing the outcome the loss of nearly 1,200 souls at the hands of a German U boat in the spring of 1917 Larson keeps pulling the reader along He does so by adopting many perspectives thos [...]


  2. Please don t tell me that we re going to be subjected to this kind of inept writing, I thought, when, on page 7, I encountered the ship was booked to carry nearly 2,000 people, or souls My suspicion deepened two pages on when I ran across a reference to the captain s holding the record for a round voyage, meaning round trip, I fervently hoped that I was not going to be subjected to parenthetical comments every few pages giving unwanted and unneeded synonyms for perfectly comprehensible words in [...]

  4. Deeply moving Tension builds up as submarine and Lusitania head for the Irish Sea killing area Life onboard the U boat and the Lusitania described wonderfully The sinking of the vessel is made tragic as we have come to know the passengers Painful for me as my grandfather torpedoed in these waters Had a chance to leave ship before his ship destroyed by U boat forward gun He lived on fruit floating in water for nine days before being rescued But frostbite loss of fingers and toes killed him Highly [...]


  5. When the anniversary of the Lusitania came around in 2015, I opted to read, Triumph, Tragedy, and the End of the Edwardian Age by Greg King and Penny Wilson, so it is only now that I have finally got around to this book on the tragedy, by Erik Larson My initial thoughts are that, if your interest is in the voyage and passengers, then it would be best to read the King and Wilson book This is a little wide ranging, with a large section concentrating on the aftermath and how it affected the then US [...]
